For months the media has played up claims that “immigrant kids” wee abused in a Virginia ICE detention center after being “separated” from their parents. Now a new report has disproven the accusations.
Liberals have claimed that the stories of abuse of illegal children is somehow “proof” that President Donald Trump is evil personified. But, now we have found that the whole claim that kids were abused is all a lie.
Per the Daily Mail:
A state review into the treatment of immigrant teens held at a Virginia detention center confirmed the facility uses restraint techniques that can include strapping children to chairs and placing mesh bags over their heads.
But investigators concluded the harsh treatment described by detainees at the Shenandoah Valley Juvenile Center did not meet the state’s legal threshold of abuse or neglect, according to a copy of the findings issued Monday by the Virginia Department of Juvenile Justice and obtained by The Associated Press.
The regulators did make several recommendations to improve conditions inside the facility located in the mountains near Staunton, Virginia, including hiring more bilingual staff, expanding “culturally relevant programming” and improving screening to provide care for detainees who suffer from mental health issues.
The state also said administrators should consider new furniture and fresh paint to make the jail-like facility “more developmentally appropriate.”
The whole story came from lies put out by the Associated Press — fake news since 1846.
Liberals have been latching onto every fake claim to use as a sledge hammer to destroy Donald Trump over “his” so-called policy of child separation. Of course, the facts are that the policy has been in effect since the late 1990s and was signed into place by President Bill Clinton.
Indeed, the policy of separating little children from illegal aliens has been implemented by every president since Clinton. And it has been used to stop child trafficking, too.
That is it’s chief reason for existing, in fact. The reason is because these illegals are buying children in Central America and using them as cover to get into the U.S. The idea is that these illegals imagine that if they have a child in tow, the authorities will let them in automatically.
But, that is one practice that Trump is trying to stop. He wants this trafficking in kids to stop.
Apparently, liberals don’t mind it over much.
